We like rockband. I have the 360 version. She has the wii version.

Can I bring my 360 wired-version guitar to her place and use it on the wii?

    I'm going to say that's a big negative, Ghost Rider. I've tried a PS3 wired controller controller in a 360, no joy. Even though they're both USB, and have all the same buttons more or less, I think there's more going on under the hood that prevents them from working cross-platform. I haven't tried a 360 controller with a Wii (I have a Wii, but don't have Rock Band for that system), but I'd say it's highly likely there's no cross-console compatibility with these things.

    All wireless 360 peripherals use proprietary hardware. This is why Guitar Hero and Rock Band controllers for the 360 are compatible with either game, but PS3 guitars are not.

    I can confirm that a wired Guitar Hero 360 controller does not work with Rock Band on Wii, if that helps.
